Writing update

So I’ve finished a draft of sorts.


The novel presently exists as novella. Possibly because I am, foremost, an editor and can’t help myself: I trim trim trim and there’s not much left.


Three options from here:

a) Leave it as a novella, and whack it through a couple more editorial passes

b) Take these bones and give them flesh, aiming for a regular kind of novel

c) Stick the bloody thing in a drawer and say “Well, that’s that. Now I can start writing a real book.”


I lean towards (c).
